So its three years since my treatment finished and apart from poxy lymphoedema and menopause stuff I have recovered pretty well.
My consultant's team have looked after me vey well, but there was one that i didn't like and, typically, kept running in to him at check ups. He's brusque and a bit rough and always hurts me when he examines me. Today, I had my latest appointment and saw a new doctor - the first female one ever!
Anyway, to cut a long story short, this appointment was so relaxed I finally confessed that I don't seem to be able to summon up any interest in sex at all, and that although it makes me sad in a way to think that part of my life could be over, I am so disinterested it doesn't really bother me.
So, she went and fetched the big boss consultant who is very smooth, but utterly lovely. He stresed how much they all care about what happens to us and that although he's delighted that my physical treatment has gone well, he wants to make sure I get to enjoy not just a long life after CC, but a full and happy one too. What a babe.
So, anyway, he is referring me for some help, although it wasn't too clear what that would be. Psychosexual counselling I'd guess although I do think it would be good if someone would do some kind of check on my hormone levels. Anyway, I feel very wobbly this afternoon but if I don't do something, nothing will change.
Has anyone else tried this?
